I use a material language to describe immaterial realities.

I do this in a holistic way that integrates my studio practice and my life - waking and dreaming, banal and spiritual. Each project is expressed with specific mediums and processes, but I am consistently drawn to physical materials. In a world suffocating with objects, I believe that by mindfully contemplating the nature of matter and its interactions, we might find deeper ways to connect to essential life forces.

The way I see “stuff” is a sort of animism: I believe that all collections of matter have a capacity for life, personality, and can speak through arrangement, balance and context. The messages are there for all of us to see but they often need translating, so I use my experiences as an architect, carpenter and mechanic to speak the language of systems in a variety of dialects. As something leans, pulls or fastens, it describes an attitude or a part of a story. I explore all possible situations to draw intellectual and emotional connections between the inanimate and those of us who are animated.

I was born and raised in New York City, studied philosophy and architecture in college, and have crossed Turtle Island by car, train, or bicycle at least 7 times. I have attended residencies at the VT studio center, ACRE, This Will Take Time, SomoS, and BoxoPROJECTS, among others, and have shown my work across the US and in Europe, at AA|LA, BUOY, Space Gallery, Roman Susan, the Lust Gallery, 2C, and the Bronx Museum, among others. I am a member of the music group 7 Count, ocassionaly teach at Skidmore Collge, and currently live and work.
